I'm not sure the comparison is really as simple as an Andrea Bargnani
vs Chris Bosh
debate. You have to compare apples with apples. There are a lot of whatifs and I can't really say for one that Chris Bosh
is better than Andrea or vice versa. Don't get me wrong though, if there is one thing I believe is that Bargnani
has more talent than Bosh
but as others pointed out, is much lazier and less willing to work on other important aspects of the game other than his shooting albeit more willing lately with Coach Casey.
For example, do you think Bargs
would produce more scoring than Bosh
if he was plugged into the Miami lineup in place of him? I would say so. Heck, that's why Bosh
is shooting more 3's now. Because he's that open out there. Bargnani
would be shooting wide open 3's all day.
Bosh during his time in Toronto did great things. Led this team with a mediocre roster year after year. Had to be the guy. Bargnani
never really had to be the guy. Bosh
took the game winning shot because he wanted to. I think Bargs
just takes it because he's asked to. After Bosh
left, it seemed like the franchise wanted Derozan to be the focus on offense again making Bargnani
option 2 on offense.
Lastly, I think Bargs
needs a change of environment. Under BC, he will never really reach his full potential. He needs a coach and a management team that will really make him work and accountable. Thing is, in my point of view. Bosh
surpassed any expectations that I had of him and well, sad thing is Bargnani
has yet to even brush the surface. And I'm not sure he ever will. Guess we'll have to wait and see.
